A 27-year old security guard, Joy Amodu has been arrested by the
Police in Lagos, for beating her 10-year old niece, Foziya Danjuma to
According to the police, the suspect after beating up the girl
inserted Aboniki balm, (methyl salicylate ointment) into her private
parts and eyes. She later became unconscious and she was rushed to the
hospital by Joy. The little girl was rejected at the first two
hospitals she was rushed too, but was later admitted at Ikoyi Military
hospital, where a good samaritan saw the situation of the girl and
alerted an NGO who reported Joy to the police.
She was picked up and confessed to the crime, stressing that she had
to do that because her father left her in her care and she has been
warning her to stop bedwetting because she is too old for it. The
police later found out that, Foziya’s father made her live with joy
when she complained of a strange illness and loneliness pleading with
him that she needed a companion.
Joy will soon be arraigned in court, but their family has stepped
into this, insisting it is a family matter and should be settled the
family way. Police are however saying because the girl is a minor,
they will leave it to Government to decide if it should be treated as
a family matter or not.

Unfortunately, his mum is now late and Tyler has to now search for his real dad alone. But why a mother would do this to her own grownup child is baffling.
The Kwara State Government on Wednesday shut down an illegal aviation
school near Giri Alimi Roundabout in Ilorin, the state capital.
The institution, which is just a few kilometer away from the
International Aviation College, Ilorin was said to be offering to the
unsuspecting students, Bachelor of Science and Education degrees.
The school, which is named HIK School of Aviation, is said to have
enrolled 150 students reportedly and holds its lecture from 2pm to 7pm
on week days.
The Commissioner of Education and Human Capital Development, Alhaji
Saka Onimago, in an interview with journalists, said the school was
not accredited by the Nigerian Universities Commission.
The suspects were apprehended in two different locations in the
capital city of Oyo State, Ibadan.
The EFCC gave the following list of student fraudsters on March 19,
Otuyalo Damilola – 400 level, Computer Science of Lead City
Adegbuyi Michael – University of Kaula Lumpur, Malaysia;
Ibrahim Aruna – Mineral Resources Engineering, Federal Polytechnic,
Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State;
Adeosun Matthew – 200 level, Banking and Finance, University of
Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State.
Others are Afolabi Ayodele, Balogun Olumuyiwa and Abiola Okunola.
Five of the suspects, i.e. Aruna, Matthew, Ayodele, Olumuyiwa and
Okunola, were arrested together at the Iyana Adeoyo Branch of a first
generation bank in Dugbe, Ibadan, while they were collecting proceeds
of scam via Western Union.
The other two suspects, Damilola and Michael, were picked up in a
rented apartment in Oluyole Estate in Ibadan.
The arrest of scammers was possible due to intense surveillance by
One of the suspects, Olumuyiwa, admitted conning a white American
lady, Sarah Jorth, in a romance scam. He said he was used a false name
(Vincente Marco) to deceive her into believing that he would marry her
and in the process raked in more than $450,000 (Four Hundred and Fifty
Thousand United States Dollars) from her.
Another suspect, Damilola said he had been “in the business” since
2010. He is doing yahoo yahoo (Internet fraud) to make both ends meet.
The scammer also boasted he had purchased his Infinity Jeep and a
Honda Accord through the fraud.
Michael confessed that he started Internet scam since 2000 when he was
a student at the University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State. Even
when he moved to Malaysia, he was still engrossed in the business.
“Anytime I come home on holiday, I look for vulnerable targets because
the rigour of studies in Malaysia would not allow me to do it there,”
he said. He disclosed that his specialty was lottery scam.
Items recovered from the suspects include: three laptop computers; one
flash drive; two Visafone modems; one travelling passport; one
Infinity Fx 35 SUV, one Honda Accord car and some bank documents.
They will be arraigned in court as soon as investigations are concluded.

The brothers Abdulfatai and Shakiru Osun had allegedly killed their
brother, Yusuf Osun, over their father’s property.
Yusuf was brutally murdered after he allegedly refused to sign an
agreement to sell their late father’s house at Satellite Town,
PM News reports:
The incident happened at their late father’s house at House 3C,
Mobil Estate, Satellite Town, Lagos.
The suspects allegedly conspired and strangled Yusuf, who was the
eldest, in the night, after which they allegedly used a cutlass to
butcher him to ensure he was dead and attempted to cover up the
P.M.NEWS learnt that not quite long after their father died, the three
brothers started fighting over the property he left behind.
While the suspects, Abdulfatai and Shakiru, allegedly wanted the
property sold and the money shared, Yusuf, the deceased, was said to
be opposed to selling the house.
P.M.NEWS gathered that the two suspects negotiated with a buyer to
sell the four-bedroom duplex with boys quarters for N17 million. Part
of the conditions, P.M.NEWS learnt, was that the three brothers who
inherited the property must sign an agreement before payment would be
made by the buyer.
Trouble started when the suspects met Yusuf and informed him about
their decision and asked him to sign the agreement as the third party.
P.M.NEWS learnt that Yusuf insisted that they should not sell the
family property since their mother was still alive.
The decision did not go down well with the suspects who allegedly
hatched a plan to eliminate him.
Luck ran out on them after they killed Yusuf when one their neighbours
who saw what happened that night, contacted the police at Satellite
Town Division. They were arrested and after preliminary investigation,
the police transferred the matter to the SCID.
When P.M.NEWS contacted the DPO at Satellite Town, he was not around
to comment on the matter.
A police source at the station, who confirmed the incident, told our
reporter that the matter has been transferred to SCID.
At Panti efforts to speak with the suspects failed as the
Investigation Police Officer declined such request.
The suspects were taken to Yaba Magistrates’ Court for arraignment
on Tuesday but the arraignment was stalled because the courts did not
sit on that day.
They were returned to a cell at SCID Panti, to be arraigned on a later
